Say Goodnight, Gracie
Comedy,Play

Fountain Hills Theater announces the Arizona premier of "Say Goodnight, Gracie," the hit Broadway play that invites you to spend a hilarious, heart-warming evening in the uplifting company of the world's favorite and funniest centenarian. George Burns, whose career spanned one hundred years of American entertainment history, is now "miraculously alive and kicking" in a stunning tour de force. "Say Goodnight, Gracie" was Broadway's third longest running solo performance show and was nominated for a 2003 Tony Award for BEST PLAY and won the 2003-04 National Broadway Theatre Award for BEST PLAY.
In "Say Goodnight, Gracie," we discover George in limbo between this world and the next, unable to join his beloved wife and partner Gracie Allen until he gives the Command Performance of his lifetime for God. He looks back upon his impoverished, plucky youth on the lower East Side of New York… his disastrous, but tenacious career in Vaudeville ... the momentous day when he met a fabulously talented young Irish girl named Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen … their instant chemistry, with his flawless timing a perfect mate to her dizzy delivery ... his wooing of her, their marriage and their rise to the pinnacles of Vaudeville, Movies, Radio and Television. Gracie's demise forced George to start from square one - in life and in his career - eventually achieving an equal level of success as a solo raconteur and Academy Award-winning actor, portraying everything from a Sunshine Boy to, oh, God.
"Say Goodnight, Gracie" is directed by Noel Irick and stars FHT's Artistic Director, Peter J. Hill as George Burns.
